So my parents have alowed $200.000 CAD for new bindings, boots and boards at a local sale sometime this month (I will probably get an extension, anyway).
I have this heel-lift and consistent tightness issue in my boots, no one around here sells anything to fix that problem.
So I know I need new boots.
My bindings, are Salomon, they're pretty good, but I really dislike the toe cap and I find it very pressured, so I'm getting new bindings.
Now for the bit that causes me to put this topic in the board section.
I have A 2008 Rossignol Sublime 153. (I am about 5'6 and weigh roughly 132 kg or something.)
I never really liked my setup last year, but thinking about it, that might be because of the heel lift, really (other then the edges of my board cracking a little) it's an ok board.
But I have the opportunity to get a new board.
My current board doesn't really go with my clothes, but does that really matter? (only a little in my brain.)
So my question is, do you think I should stick with my current board, and see if it'll be OK on the hill when my heelift problem is resolved.
Should I jump at the chance to get a new board, possibly putting my old one to waste (it still rides)
IS my heelift making me unsure>?
I really don't know what direction I should head in, a new board would be great but I Want to save money too.
Thanks in advance.
(p.s I will possibly be riding a fair bit of snowboard cross, bombing down the hill, and some stuff in the park. No pipe. I like doing jumps and stuff off the groomed trails... maybe some tree riding too.)
